Round Dance for Wet'suwet'en
Reconciliation doesn't happen at the barrel of a gun. The moment when Unist'ot'en land defender, Freda Huson, cremated the Canadian flag that said "Reconciliation is dead," a new wave of powerful Wet'suwet'en solidarity actions took hold. We are joining Indigenous land defenders and allies to carry forward the Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chiefs' message for #WetsuwetenStrong: the RCMP must withdraw from unceded Wet'suweten lands immediately, and their right to free, prior, and informed consent must be respected. #ShutDownCanada

We have not yet received a safety plan from the organizers, but we do know that Wet'suwet'en solidarity actions have been subject to heightened police presence and risk of colonial state violence.
